Welcome to the Climate Dice Schools Zone

Here you will find information and resources to help you integrate Climate Dice into your teaching about climate change.

What does Climate Dice offer to schools?

It's effective

Children love stories, and it has been known for a very long time that they learn best when playing. That’s why we think integrating Climate Dice into your teaching about climate change is a smart move. It’s a storytelling dice game that helps children learn safely while they play and we’re confident that you will love it too.

It’s incredibly versatile

Climate Dice can be used by any combination of pupils and adults, from whole class to pairs. You are limited only by the number of sets in your classroom. At the same time, it can be used as anything from a quick time-filler at the end of a lesson to the focus of a much longer session, or anything in between. There are suggestions in the free Teachers’ Guide but you will soon find many other ways to use Climate Dice to suit your own pupils and your own teaching style.

It’s not just about climate change

Playing with Climate Dice provides so many other benefits, and here are just a few:

  • It’s great for spoken language development
  • It’s great for co-operation and a range of other pro-social skills and behaviours
  • It’s easily integrated into many aspects of the English curriculum
  • It’s easily integrated into the Science curriculum and great for encouraging an interest in STEM subjects. Watch how the girls in your class rise to meet the challenge.
  • It’s a perfect way to encourage problem-solving skills
  • It’s resolutely positive – and there’s little enough of that in our world

Climate Dice is very simple and you can open up the pouch and play with next to no preparation. However, we recommend you take a look at our Teachers’ Guide and at the very least read the section on eco-anxiety. Children need to know about climate change, but we must also protect their emotional well-being and you will find valuable advice about that most important issue.

What other teachers say about Climate Dice

The dice are fantastic for discussion and bringing out the children’s knowledge of what they know about climate change and how they can act. It has brought up some good discussions with children backing up their ideas and them going further to research what they could be doing to reduce their carbon footprint in school and at home. For Example transport and eating less meat, reducing waste in school using less paper. It also encourages children to think more about what they could be doing at school and in their community to take action. The discussion about the dice have then brought plenty of discussions at home with their families about how they can use the 10Rs to reduce, reuse their waste before recycling, using their food left overs for example.
